School Goal $66,000 

We are so excited for the 2023 ROAR Run!  This will be our second year running the fundraiser as a PTA instead of using an outside company. This means all of the funds will go directly to Meiklejohn.  Here are some more details about this event. Parents should have received an email today from MemberHub about the ROAR Run.  You will receive just one email, not one email per student. Please check your spam folder if you do not see the email.  This email will contain the link to the website as well as information on how to share the experience with family and friends.

Please know you can submit donations/pledges online via credit card.  There is a fee associated with the online service.  You will also find a form on the last page of this handout to use if you wish to submit donations via cash or check.  All donations are tax-deductible. If you are in need of a donation letter please you can email after dropping off cash or checks to the front office. If you pay online there will be donation information on your receipt.

Time Line

  • April 14th is the deadline for classes to meet 40% of their class goal to be entered into the toy pig animal race for a chance to win an extra recess. Two classes will win.

ROAR Run Fan Pack ~ Parents and family are invited to come to cheer on your student! We will be selling a fun ROAR Run Fan pack for $10.  The pack will include two Meiklejohn boom sticks, sport towel, and sweatbands.  Supplies are limited so order early.  If purchased by April 19th the fan pack will go home with your student, otherwise, it will be available to pick up on the field at the ROAR Run. You can purchase your Fan Pack by using this QR code through the Memberhub Store.

Meiklejohn Water Bottles ~ We are also selling aluminum water bottles for $12.  These water bottles are 24 ounces with a pop-up sip top and feature the Meiklejohn logo. If you wish to purchase one for your student to use at the ROAR Run please do so by April 19th so they can go home with your student on April 20th.
